  2. Mark Zuckerberg seems to have been, developmentally, quite the thug in college and this played out accordingly in subsequent years, unfortunately for the folks in his database. Maybe he can evolve, maybe not. However, this gift to NJ schools is a colossally good thing happening at the perfect time. Many students will benefit from this in ways we can see and in ways that will only play out in the future. Bless the thug for this one.

  5. With regard to the 13y.o. suicide, there is a conflict of interest in this and in any school where harm occurs to a student, and there is no written physical report on record with the school.

    If Educators, guardians, etc., any single one, should ever say that they had any knowledge at all of bullyiung, then this opens them up both personally and the School System as well, to liability. Educators Will Never acknowledge observed but unreported bullying.

    There must be a Nationally Centralized method for students and others to report, and to have incidents recorded, and then forwarded affirmatively to schools, so that even casual observers can report cases of bullying, and so that Schools a.) are clearly aware, and b.) cannot deny knowledge of same, THEN Teachers, Police, and Parents would pay attention, and maybe save a life.
